Hey... i read an interesting technological update about replacing the Internet with something faster, more secure, and vastly smarter. Welcome to PlanetLab. The project is called PlanetLab, and within the next three years, researchers say, it will help revitalize the Internet, eventually enabling you to

  • forget about hauling your laptop around. No matter where you go, you'll be able to instantly recreate your entire private computer workspace, program for program and document for document, on any Internet terminal
  • escape the disruption caused by Internet worms and viruses-which inflicted an average of $81,000 in repair costs per company per incident in 2002-because the network itself will detect and crush rogue data packets before they get a chance to spread to your office or home;
  • instantly retrieve video and other bandwidth-hogging data, no matter how many other users are competing for the same resources;
  • archive your tax returns, digital photographs, family videos, and all your other data across the Internet itself, securely and indestructibly, for decades..

Its interesting .. isnt it? Awaiting to use it....
